SGBH 101 - Art and Fiction

4.00 credit hours
This “gateway” to the Humanities occupies the territory shared by visual art and storytelling. Students cross cultural and historical boundaries to look at the basic human impulses toward representation and self-expression in two distinct artistic modes. Students exercise both modes in critical reflections as well as expressive work designed to highlight the functions of figurative language and imagistic language, as well as what Leon Battista Alberti calls istoria in painting.

Cardinal Directions Designation(s): Arts, Global Understanding.
iCon(s): Innovating the World.
